Song: Apple Tree
Apple Tree is set to give you chills head to toe with its haunting, cinematic, huge sound. Also just a warning for easy criers, it is an emotional, moving journey (and yes it did make me cry). Of the track, Aurora says “Apple Tree is about the potential that hides in all of us. We can all save the world if we put our minds to it. The world won’t listen to scientific proof that the world is dying, so maybe it will listen to the dreamers, the children. In a bleeding world the power of the individual is our only hope. Let her save the world. Let him save them all. Believe in us, and maybe we’ll be the generation that saves the world, rather than the one that killed it. The world is bleeding. It’s up to us know.” This powerful message is something that resonates in the track.
